Restoring the Broken at CURE Ethiopia

by on Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 9:25 am

There’s an inherent duality in the nature of CURE. It’s written right into the mission statement: “heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God.” As Christians, we are called to care for both the physical and spiritual aspects of a person’s life. It’s no secret that our physical bodies will die one day, but […]

One thing that the COVID-19 pandemic has taught the world is how to wait. We are all waiting in some capacity. Waiting for the virus numbers to decline, waiting for stores and business to reopen, waiting for travel restrictions to lift, waiting for medical treatment – the list goes on and on.
